The Anthem of the 50th International Eucharistic Congress

The 50th International Eucharistic Congress will be held in Dublin from the 10th – 16th June 2012. I can just picture us all sitting in the rain in the main arena at the RDS, and in Croke Park, singing Though We Are Many, the official anthem for the event. Note to self: next time you see decent rain gear, buy it! Click on the Radio Boo link below to listen.


Though We Are Many - (Bernard Sexton)

Though we are many, we are one body,
we who come to share this living bread;
Cup of salvation, shared among all nations,
nourishing us now and evermore.

1. We gather in this place
round the table of the Lord.
Christ's presence is revealed
in our communion and his Living Word.

2. Now our communion recalls
Christ's death and resurrection.
This living sacrifice
is our salvation now and evermore.

3. And through this shared Eucharist
we are the living Church.
We witness to Christ's love
His living body active in our world.

Awful! Typical crap music from the powers that be in the Church in Ireland. I can imagine a load of feminists nuns in jeans swaying on the bean bags! Kevin Doran should be ashamed of himself. We will be the laughing stock of the Church the way this Congress is going. Time to stop paying for this travesty. No more contributions on the feast of Corpus Christi!

Ah now James, it is not that bad. As long as we get to sing the Tantum Ergo!
